's decision overturns two previous court rulings allowing the case to proceed. the obama administration has followed the bush administration in seeking the lawsuit's dismissal. your response to these developments? >> this is an extremely common development, unfortunately. congress, media, the citizenry to relish the federal judiciary is probably the most disgraceful since 9/11. they're supposed to be the branch that was designed to hold the last couple executive branch accountable. the most shocking is not that they did not -- the most amazing fact is not a single victim of the war on terror abuses have been allowed even to have their day in court, let alone to achieve justice. in each and every case, the courthouse doors have been slammed in their face by having either claims of radical secrecy or government immunity, the idea our government officials are immune from the law, from any consequences, even when they commit the most egregious crimes. i think that is what history will view as the most profound failure. >> thank you for being with us, glenn greenwald his latest book, "with liber
said if you look at states where obama administration bombarded women with messages, you saw much bigger gaps. >> chris: senator bayh, you know, it's interesting because i was thinking of 2004 as welch pendulum swings back and forth. after 2004 when bush had issues, and he still won, democrats were disspirited. obviously four years later they came roaring back. what do republicans need to do? >> two elections i'm thinking of, chris, number one, four years ago 2008 when some parts of the democratic party said this is a vote for a new progressive era and left-leaning government. it turns out that wasn't quite the case. our party needs to be modest in the mandate we take away from it. we need togone from progressive center out. then 1988 from the republicans' perspective. democrat just lost two elections in a row to ronald reagan. what did we do? we nominated michael dukakis who is a fine man but a liberal from massachusetts. it took three beatings for to us realize you have to make common cause of moderates. that is the internal struggle the republican have to go through. true to pr
from a belly? people from 19 states have filed petitions from america. on the obama administration's we the people website. and some are close to getting the 25,000 signatures needed to require an administration response with texas a mere 600 short as of monday afternoon. it is particularly feasible for texas to withdraw from the union and to do so would protect the citizen standard of living and resecure their rights in accordance with the beliefs of our founding fathers that are no longer reflected by the federal government. so what do pandas make out of all of this? >> they don't know anything. they are stupid pandas. what do you make of this? some states can do this. some states can't. >> i think texas can pull it off. they are in a grown upstate. i think louisiana was a close second. they would be more like the high school kid that ran away from home and spend all of their money on booze and hung out with mississippi, got in trouble and they lived in texas for a little while until we took them back. >> you know, it is an interesting point. the idea creates an experiment in which yo
. it's certainly a huge deal for the obama administration. we have new details about when and how the president was told about the allen bombshell. and the latest development, our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is joining us now. jessica, first of all, what are you learning? >> hi, wolf. we understand that the president was first told there might be trouble with general allen and this investigation on friday, when the white house's counsel office was notified that there could be trouble with his nomination to become nato supreme allied commander. then on monday evening, the president was notified that secretary of defense leon panetta has referred to matter to the defense department's inspector general. keep in mind, now, according to the timetable, the president had also just been told on thursday about general petraeus' indiscretions, so it must have been an awful lot to take in all in one week, right after the election. secretary -- press secretary jay carney says, though, it was out of the white house's hands, this time frame, for their notification. listen to
. and that the general petraeus scandal is all a conspiracy by the obama administration to cover up what really happened in benghazi but if you watched any other news source over the past week, you wouldn't have heard these bizarre and counterfactual tales. the reason for this is my next guest will tell you those who get their news solely from right wing media are trapped in a bubble where no facts get inside. here to tell us about the g.o.p. bubble is bill maher the host of hbo's real time with bill maher. it is a genuine pleasure to have you on the show. >> always great to be with you. >> eliot: thank you. did reality and the fake reality of the right wing finally collide on election day and did karl rove melt down in front of us and show he couldn't deal with reality? >> i think that's what we saw there in real time to beg a phrase. on tuesday night. it was a pleasure to watch. yes, this was the last thing that could have done it to them. before this, there was always polling. they lived in their bubble. we had that bit as you
the obama administration had given to blacks, hispanics and young voters during obama's first term. obama, romney argued, had been very generous, quotes around it, to blacks, hispanics and young voters. i once heard a canadian election saying they lost election to people that wanted to stay as part of canada because of ethnic voters. this guy, paul ryan who i don't think is right for prime time yet by any means talking about the urban vote. now, they won the other side because they got the most votes. because they won fair and square, which is the first thing ryan said. why do you have to step on his own headline. they won fair and square by saying, oh, it was the black vote. basically, that's what he's saying. >> chris, let me just say, as for romney's comments, i'm still waiting for my gift. i'm waiting for my gift from obama. i haven't received my gift yet. >> where is it? >> maybe it was lost in the mail. >> you may have voted for him without getting that thing in the mail he was supposed to send everybody? >> maybe chris has it. >> i did not get my gift. let me just say the comments
i said, if you look more at the states where they -- the obama administration bombarded women with messages, you saw a much bigger gap. >> chris: it is interesting, because i was thinking of 2004 as we'll, the pendulum swings back and forth and after the 2004, which bush obviously had a lot of issues and, still won, the democrats were disspirited and four years later came roaring back, what do republicans need to do. >> two issues i'm thinking of, number one, four years ago, 2008, when some parts of the democratic party said this was a vote for a new progressive era and more left-leaning government and turned out that that was not quite the case and our party needs to be fairly modest then mandate we take away from this and governor from the center-out, progressive center, one and two, i'm thinking of 1988 from the republicans' perspective. democrats had lost two elections in a row to ronald reagan. and what did we do? nominated michael dukakis, a fine man but a liberal from massachusetts and the internal struggle republicans will go through, they have to be true to their prin
at the performance of susan rice, among others, and the obama administration, and so, harry reid sent a letter yesterday and told john mccain he is not going to get the special committee he wanted. but i think the administration simply is going to have to watch republicans spend their energy on this. david petraeus tried to make the argument, defending susan rice, that she was repeating talking points, that she'd been given for the reason that the administration did not want to alert terrorist groups that we knew that they were behind the attack. i'm not sure that that's going to quiet the criticism. we're just going to have to see how long it plays out. >> you saw the meeting yesterday with the president and congressional leaders on the fiscal cliff. how confident are you that a compromise will be reached in a timely fashion? >> pretty confident, actually, alex. you know, i thought the outcome of that meeting was about as positive as you could hope to see from a bipartisan meeting of congressional leaders with the president of the united states, all four leaders, pelosi, mcconnell, reid, boeh
gears and talk about jobs. the obama administration repeatedly asked defense contractor not to comply with t with it and warn they might be laid off in advance of cuts and of course recently boeing laid off 30% of its management force and other companies are expected to do the same. do you think the president played politics with these job cuts? >> i don't know if he played politics, but i know this. if you understand defense appropriations that that $600 billion in the sequestration, most of it is in research and development and procurement. only 15% of any procurement contract or research and development is spent in the first year. so the immediate cuts from this don't have very much impact. second, when people talk about jobs, the defense and aerospace association said there would be a million jobs lost if that $600 billion went into effect. you know what? s.e., there's only 3.5 million bornste jobs in defense in the aerospace industry, that including 757s. they're going to lose 33% in one year of their entire work force because of a 10% cut in defense? weren't a job welfare progra
of the obama administration knew it was going on, they buried it until after the election and going on and on and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't know if it's true. if it's true i guess it does. they have managed to bury the benghazi story. the media has said since romney didn't bring it up, they didn't feel any obligation to bring it up. if they put that past the election and they put this petraeus thing past the election. this second term is going to be pretty ugly people not going to go away. >> it won't be the bad guys some indication that his whatever you want to call her, his friend may have made a speech and given away some secret information that she may or may not have gotten. >> bill: only thing that could happen is if holder gets dragged into this because he may because he obviously overseas the fbi and he knew what was going on and if he see that he bury it and got fast and furious on his resume. >> you can bury certain things for only a certain amount of time. and second terms are not kind to second term presidents. i think coupled with the stagnant econom
paula broadwell. defense secretary panetta's comments on the scandal and his future in the obama administration. then there's the fbi agent and friend of jill kel yae's. he's now subject of an internal fbi probe himself for inappropriate behavior. let's get into the details. overnight the pentagon announced this, that general allen's nomination to be allied supreme commander over all of anywnato been delayed and panetta has asked them to ex pa diet joseph dunfer. >> while this matter is under investigation and before the facts are determined, general allen will remain commander. general allen is entitled to due process in this matter. in the meantime the secretary has asked the president, and the president has agreed, to put his nomination on hold until the relevant facts are determined. >> all right. that's pentagon spokesman george little. he's on a trip to asia with the defense secretary. more on that trip in a minute. allen, who is married, denied any wrongdoing and, for now, remains commander in afghanistan as the investigation continues. defense secretary leon panetta was i
this morning that the obama administration doesn't really see petraeus as their guy. he served in multiple administrations has the backing of a lot of republicans but with him now testifying before the senate intelligence committee tomorrow is this where the white house could start to feel more the heat? >> absolutely. i mean, look, he was somebody else's pick but he did serve as somewhat of a sense of continuity for the administration serving multiple posts under the president. i would imagine most of the press corps will want to talk to the president and get him on the record about some of these issues. the attorney general of the united states along with the head of the fbi were investigating david petraeus for six months and the president didn't know about it? that's going to be a very interesting and hard-hitting question to put before the president then when petraeus goes before congress to discuss benghazi, i imagine some of these questions might come up again and people will try to get them in some type of cross fire amongst each other and there will be plenty of blame to go around
from him? joining me now is congressman chaffetz, one of the biggest critics of the obama administration's handling of the benghazi attack. what do you want to know? the senate has its own concerns. >> well i would love to know from the president back on june 6th when there was a terrorist attack on our benghazi facility was the president aware of that, what did he do about it. during the attack itself does not appear based on the information the department of defense revealed on friday, that the president took any action or gave any directive for our military to go in and engage in the fire fight and extract our forces and then the third part i want to know about is, why did the president mislead the american people about what happened on the ground because it was clear that the intelligence officers, the state department was able to witness this in real time. there was no indication there was a mob. no indication that a video was the jen ne sis of this. why did the administration for weeks mislead the american people. >> they claim they were not misleading the american p
of the obama administration's policies. >> okay. so this is part of the twilight zone narrative in which superstorm sandy or so-called presidential gifts to minorities in this case a benghazi cover-up conspiracy is to blame for republicans losing the election. now, this is not to say that there can't be questions about what happened in benghazi. four americans died, and we must prevent such a tragedy ever happening again. but to suggest the phrasing of the perpetrators as al qaeda or extremist elements amounts to a vast conspiracy is, frankly, ridiculous. just for recollection's sake, let's remember the very real consequences of the bush administration's actions on faulty intelligence regarding iraq and a guy called saddam hussein. >> we were told by no less a person by your own secretary of state that he had an active and ongoing program for acquiring and developing weapons of mass destruction. >> and i fully believe that all of the evidence on that is not yet in. >> yes, apparently ambassador bolton believes in intelligence can be quite fluid in some circumstances, up to four years lat

to the bottom of it. what republicans are saying is the obama administration has put out very conflicting stories about what happened in benghazi, when they knew about it, what they did about it and how they sort of perpetuated the idea this was a spontaneous attack. so the republicans on capitol hill are saying we only need to get through the double talk. get to the bottom of what happened. we lost an american am bas dpor. three other americans. president obama said i did everything i could as soon as we found out this is happening. then how come the whole place was left completely undefended? there's so many big ands of questions. that's what senator mccain was getting at yesterday when he said let's put together a committee that can look at this specifically, rather than having it scattered and half a dozen committees looking at it. this may give us a better answer faster. that's ultimately what everybody wants to keep the americans safe abroad and in the future. >> is this part of the mccain and obama conflict from 2008? >> i think mccain -- right after obama was elected in 2008, mcca
and the obama administration over susan rice. she went out on the sunday talk shows and got some of the information wrong about what happened in benghazi. president obama on wednesday strongly defended her in the wake of attacks from senators john mccain and lindsey graham. >> obama: if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and besmirch her reputation it is outrageous. >> this fight over benghazi is getting nasty peter ogborn. >> yeah, it is. it is. and sadly, it's becoming politicized because there may be a real issue there but who knows. there's so much noise from republicans, especially that we're clouding the issue. >> dan henning with the "full court press" this morning. dan? >> this is the "full court press." >> good morning, gentlemen. oth
the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. >> what the president -- the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of this base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community, here, offering one of the gifts to them. >> what the president did is he gave them two things. one a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. >> reporter: and the second thing in order to get hispanic voters? >> number two, put in place obama care which is basically $10,000 a family. i mean, it's a proven political strategy which is give a bunch of money from the government to a group and guess what, they'll vote for you. >> reporter: sources telling me this has been romney's argument since the moment he realize heed lost, telling the closest circle the very next morning that america is becoming an entitled society, that some a
. >> stephanie: okay, lieutenant colonel calf peters fox security news expert. >> the obama administration just as the administration claimed that there was purely coincidence of the benghazi conflict was attacked on the anniversaries of september 11th. now it's purely coincidence that this extramarital affair surfaces right after the election. not before but after but before the intelligence chief go to capitol hill to get grilled. i subject that these chicago guys knew of this affair for a while, held it in their back pocket until they needed to play the card. >> these tough chicago guys like eric cantor. >> and the republican guy from washington like jacki schechner was telling us? yeah, chicago guys. i'm sure sheldon knows some chicago guys, get some stuff done. >> stephanie: i'll have a little chat with karl rove about the money. >> where did you keep it? what did you do with it. >> stephanie: check in that bag of vipers for the money. >> where's our money, a bag of broken glass. there's your money. >> it's right out there outside of the window. lean out a little further. >> stephanie: jon
is what he says, in part. relationships between the obama administration and business community, first of all, he says has been strained but the business community vigorously supports efforts to conclude a bipartisan fiscal accord. i believe tax increase, especially for the wealthiest, are appropriate, but only if they are joined by serious cuts in discretionary spending and entitlements. number of ceos and companies agree and support principles that call for a comprehensive and balanced solution to the debt problem, increased tax revenues and decreased spending. it's a fascinating op-ed. >> i generally don't like to associate myself with telling people to read lloyd blankfein op-eds, but it's really well written. it's not new. the only thing that's new, you're seeing business leaders say, yes, i get it. we've got to pay higher taxes, but he frames it really well. he really frames the business and the president of the administration have got to come together. he starts the column that way, talks about lincoln and team much rivals, doris kearns go goodwin's book and says this is like ro

from washington. brianna, where does the obama administration stand right now with all of this? >> reporter: well, right now we are hearing from the white house who says this won't affect the president's attention to the fiscal cliff situation. that said, we do know that he has had to spend time on this. a limited amount of time in the words of white house press secretary jay carney, but we also know that a lot of staff hours have had to go to dealing with this situation with generals petraeus and allen. yesterday this was the first press conference that we had a chance to ask jay carney about this situation. and he said that the president thinks very highly of general allen, of his service to his country, of the job he's done in afghanistan. and one reporter asked if he, if the president has the full faith, or if general allen, i should say, has the full faith of president obama. and here's what carney said. >> he has faith in general allen, believes he's doing and has done an excellent job at isap. and i would rephrase the pentagon for the process underway with regards to gen
as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the question, is hillary clinton the answer? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. never too early to start speculation. >> special for those of us who are political news junkies. i've been saying for a while no inside information. i suspect she still has that passio
to that post. >> it tells you a great deal about the obama administration that the secretary of defense is a consolation prize. this would be a remarkable insult to the men and women in uniform to nominate for secretary of defense a man who made his political career trashing our military. criticizing it. who told lies about war crimes in vietnam and more recently joked about how side and uneducated our soldiers are. i don't want to hear john kerry is a combat veteran. so is benedict and nold. >> are you out of your mind? john kerry got the silver star for his service in street a number. this is not about running for president. it's about swift boating people. john kerry would be a great addition to the president's staff. i have known him since 1985 and he never mentioned he would like to be the secretary of defense. he wrote foreign relations, foreign relations, foreign relations as his three choices for committee assignment. megyn: he wouldn't bronze star and silver star. the reports were he threw hose medals over a fence in protest. a lot of veterans protested the war. but he did toni
senior officials in the obama administration looking to leave for the second term. secretary of state lilg healthing hillary rodham clinton and leon panetta both expected to depart. likewise, the president might have to find replacement for treasury secretary timothy geithner and attorney general eric holder if they decide that they, too, would like to leave. toipt bring in our white house correspondent briana keiller to talk about just more on the president's plate here. how does this add to what he needs to get done starting in the next year? >> it really adds to it. i mean, you've got this issue, obviously, that comes after any re-election. the turnover of the cabinet, suzanne, but just think of the big plate that this is being added to. first offer, the fiscal cliff. that is obviously the biggest issue that president obama has to deal with. you're looking at tax cuts that expire at the very end of december, and then those spending cuts that are set to kick in on january 2nd. as he works, obviously, figuring out the new faces on his cabinet. he has his anything raugs on january 20t
, there was some covert action program going on in libya. i think the agency and the obama administration are trying to figure out how to deal with that. it could include some very embarrassing information related to the program. we don't know exactly what it is, it could be related to syria, it could be related to, perhaps, the militia group that carried out the benghazi attack. so these are important questions that need to be answered, and by sidelining petraeus in this way through his resignation, certainly it's going to be harder to get at those questions at least for independent investigators, say, on capitol hill. shannon: he may not testify this week as was planned, but i talked with a number of lawmakers this weekend who said they do intend, if necessary, to subpoena him, even in his roam as a private citizen -- role as a private citizen now. do you think he'll resist it or a welcome it to testify to something that maybe the investigation didn't want him to talk about publicly? >> well, the question is not so much whether he will testify, it's what he will say when he testifies an
to deliver on friday, now unburdened by the constraints of his old job, no longer a member of the obama administration, if he might be a little more free to talk about what he really knows about what happened in libya? >> i think it's a great point but know, rick, that would be even worse because it would suggest that he did sort of cave to pressure in the previous testimony. so, if he does anything to change any of it, i think that, that it becomes that much more serious. quite frankly i think it becomes sort of indefensible for the intelligence committee to protect, you know, the intelligence community from that sort of scrutiny and from making this stuff public. i just, i can not understand what the justification would be for them to not let this stuff become public just because of the soap opera angle to all of it. rick: charlie hirt, columnist with the "washington times." charlie, thanks so much. >> thanks, rick. jenna: this just in. lawmakers hearing testimony now on capitol hill trying to get to the bottom of that deadly meningitis outbreak we've been talking so much about that w

of the surveillance in the wake of 9/11. thanks to the petri at act and continued under the obama administration. the government has more access to info about us than at anytime in history. a small example of what this looks like. check out this graph of u.s. government from google. these are requests that don't require warrants and this doesn't include the security related requests not disclosed. for awhile, i thought the combination of these trends, the u bik wiity of technology was pushing us to a future where citizens would be unable to keep their secrets while the government keeps its secrets. i feared it would end up totally exposed to each other and the state. the state and its doing and what it's doing in our name would be a mystery. then miraculously, but also inevitably, they collided with each other in the petraeus affair. the four-star general's communications with broadwell reveal a lot of mundane personal failings. really, it seems not anything scandalous as far as the public's fear goes. the only possible scandal, as far as i can tell, is the conditions which the fbi came to read

to trigger a promised review from the obama administration. the report notes that 69 similar petitions according to the alter net have garnered over 670,000 signatures from all 50 states. prompting a review that will no doubt consist of junior white house staffers enjoying a good laugh before placing them in a circular file. not to be left out someone offered another petition to the administration to strip the citizenship from everyone who signed the petition to secede and exile them. so it is good to know after the election and a decisive democratic victory that we are all united now and will never fight again. travis is calling us from chicago, illinois. good morning travis. you're on the "bill press show." welcome. >> caller: good morning, john. >> john: what a pleasure. >> caller: every time i hear all of this big uproar about benghazi thing, it makes me sick because out here in chicago we've got about 20 kids killing each other every weekend. most of them are innocent bystanders getting killed. there is a good handful
into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> those republican senators were quick to respond to the

jessica yellin is with us from d.c. jessica, is the obama administration saying anything about the graham and schumer plan as it starts to formulate here? >> hey, ted. they haven't commented on the plan so far this week, but graham and schumer are re-engaging on a proposal that those two senators first outlined in march of 2010, and the white house supported that r proposal then. that proposal has four specific components, not just tightening the bord, but the key component is a biometrics social security card so only those here legally can be hired. that is sort of can considered the key linchpin that could get a lot of republicans on board. also a path to legalization, a process for admitting temporary workers. it sort of is considered a framework for a comprehensive plan that the white house said they very much would like to get done for the president in the second term. >> what about the timing? why now? why is this being brought up after the election? there is exit polling that showed that majority of americans want something done on this. what is pushing this right now? >> well, a c
and months, it just doesn't wash, because if they knew all about this, why would the obama administration put general allen's name up for nomination, release a statement praising his service, schedule all these hearings, fly him here from afghanistan, only to have all this fall apart at the last minute. if they knew all these details, it just doesn't make a lot of sense. >> and why are they searching her home if, in fact, it's just about a sexual relationship between biographer and her subject. all right, chris lawrence, thank you. general john allen, of course, denying any wrongdoing as we've mentioned. nick paton walsh was recently on the ground with the troops in afghanistan. he's in beirut for us this morning. tell me a little bit about general john allen. i think that there's so many things that are so complicated about this story. so give us some insight into who he is and how he treats certainly the folks who, who served with him. >> very much respected career soldier. he became the head of u.s. forces in the nato campaign in afghanistan. a man with acute understanding of the problems
the regulatory environment of a second obama term. in the past 90 days the obama administration has posted 6,125 regulations and notices on its regulations.gov website, an average of 68 a day, jenna. jenna: wow, doug mcelway live from d.c. thank you. rick: frustration turning to violence after weeks without power on long island, new york. an electrical worker is now in the hospital after getting sucker punched by an angry long island resident. john apple white came up from florida to help out with the recovery efforts. he had been working 16-hour days when he was hit. now he's recovering from a broken jaw and cracked cheekbone. >> he gave me no signs of anything aggressive. he was in a nice vehicle, dressed fairly nice from what i could tell. as soon as i got within an arm's reach of him he decked me. i'm not going to let it get me down. i even skroeu what i do enjoy what i do. i'm not going to let one person spoil this. >> others are taking utility companies to court following a class action lawsuit against the long island power authority. do they have a case? lis wiehl is a fox news legal
to talk about specifically if he is asked whether or not there is going to be a benefit for a second obama administration for the african-american community and how they're doing economically? and also, you see this president over the last couple of weeks who is more emotional and we've seen him cry the last couple of times, the last couple of weeks. is he iffing to feel that he can be a little bit more of himself, more open and really own this administration, own his policy, and be a more comfortable president in the next four years? >> he got re-elected rather decisively, 332 electoral college votes. you only need 270 to be elected. he goes in right now with a lot of confidence, but, you know what, all that confidence in the world can't help if the country is about to go over the fiscal cliff. >> yeah. you ow, i mean, it really is something when you think about it going in the second term that he is going to be dealing with something like this. there are some advisor who's say, yeah, call the bluff, go over the cliff. it's not going to be as bad as you think because you've got more lever
program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben
? and is it a coincidence or a cover-up? the obama administration pressed on when they learned about the petraeus scandal. >> we understand how people think is bizarre, i mean, the day after the election and the anger you're hearing on capitol hill? >> brian: from democrats as well as republicans. the white house response coming up. >> steve: the most amaze video you'll see all day. a three-car crash with a three-year-old stuck inside. how that baby -- oh, my goodness -- managed to make it out alive. the good samaritan who came to the rescue.

the administration and with president obama. you didn't see a lot of people forming a circle around general petraeus and saying, look, he should continue in the job despite the scandal. >> the report in the journal indicates there was a lot of inner agency finger-pointing. >> that's right. over the time line that he released it, it was unexpected by other agencies. they weren't expecting him to do that. and then within the cia himself, he clashed with his own counter terrorism person over drone strikes. he wanted to align the strikes more with diplomatic efforts and the cia were after targets. and then on a smaller, but notable scale, he tends to schmooze with saw bored nets by going running with them. he would subject people come along on his athletic bouts. he runs a 6 to 7-minute mile. a few people at the cia could keep up. even these efforts by general petraeus to get to know people within the cia fell flat, and contentiousness under cut his relationships. >> and again, the "wall street journal" is reporting it sounded like general petraeus wanted to stay on. last monday he got a call from the h

. they believed the obama administration should have known right away this was not as spontaneous attack. they want to know who knew what, when. did the president know about the attack? when did his national security team know about the attack? there were people in tripoli and libya with the state department saying there was not enough security concerns because of some of the things going on in libya at the time. good >> the senators made remarks about you in ambassador susan rice. what did they say? >> basically, they do not trust her. they think she should have known better. it looked to be a spontaneous response. they think she should have known it was clear there wasn't organized element common -- they think it is clear there was an organized element. the white house is saying, and today we heard from a democrat who said the intelligence community reaffirmed that was the best information they had at the time. she was repeating the information they provided her. now those intelligence committees, they will hear from david petraeus. what do they want to know from former director petrae
't find it hard to believe there are neighborhoods in the united states that president obama got 97 to 99% of the vote. the turn-out level strikes me as suspicious. philadelphia has been a administration that had irregular election procedures in the past. >> nor is philadelphia the only city where the numbers are raising eyebrows. in st. lucie county, florida, incumbent republican congressman allen west is crying foul over a limited recount of early voting that shrank the total numbers for west and his victorious democratic channeler murphy. murphy remained ahead by .57% enough to escape automatic recount of the all votes cast in three county that the district encompasses. >> i have seen there are some errors made there. at least there is reason to believe there might have been. this is a democratic county in a republican part of florida. >> weekend recount action in florida did reverse results of a mayoral race in fort pierce with a new verdict so close it triggered another recount. sunshine state automatic one. >> bret: thank you. authorities in indianapolis still don't know what caused
is administration officials are already suggesting to congress that mr. obama is willing to let the deadline pass. >> new york state alone is estimated storm damage at $50 billion. that would make sandy the second most expensive storm in u.s. history after only katrina. >>> airline officials say more pilots are leaving the job and government rules require new pilots to have much more flight experience. >> this strikes me as a cynical effort on the part of some in the industry to cry wolf. >> look at what happened in the pit. things got a little hot at the nascar race. >>> nfl commissioner roger goodell said the high quality of hd tv is hurting the games because the experience of watching at home is so good. is it, though, say guys with wives? >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. investigators want to know why it took so long to learn of the affair. >> another woman said she received threatening e-mails from petraeus's mystery. bob ohr is in washington. >> all this started a few months ago when a woman in tampa got harassing e-mails she turned over to the fbi. they were tracked
this time i think is administration officials are suggesting to members of congress that mr. obama is willing to let the deadline pass, to let things go the cliff if he can't get a deal he wants. it's a strong negotiating tool. charlie, norah, gayle. >> bill plante, thank you. powerful explosion devastated a neighborhood in indianapolis over the weekend. twhoems were left in pieces and the fire damaged dozens more. as terrell brown reports fire officials are trying to figure out the cause of the blast. >> reporter: two people were killed by the massive blast that was heard for miles. and left this indianapolis neighborhood littered with debris. >> i first thought it was a bomb. >> reporter: in every direction walls crumbled and windows shattered. nearly three dozen homes were damaged or destroyed. >> there are homes that will have to be torn down and there are homes that can be inhabited in the next day two. >> reporter: the explosion happened around 11:00 p.m. saturday causing residents to flee into night. seven were injured. >> house felt like it moved a foot or so. and all we co
after president obama won re-election. certainly not how the administration envisioned the first few days of the new term. they are certainly stunned by some of these developments and trying to stay focused on the fiscal cliff, that's something that's pending and potentially could impact all americans, however, this is something they'll have to deal with, president obama is set to hold a news conference this week. he'll get a lot of questions about this. about the timing. about how this entire process has been handled. >> the president is supposed to meet with labor leaders today, obviously the allen and petraeus is taking up a lot of oxygen in washington, d.c., today. but this is an important meeting about how to approach the fiscal cliff to come to a compromise? >> right, there are a couple of different motmotivations for th meetings. one, to get a sense of the different interests coming from business leaders. also, i think president obama would like to get some of these folks on his side to come up with a balanced approach to deficit reduction. lee saunders will be here afsme. so,
ryan is dismissing suggestions that president obama's victory gives his administration a mandate to raise taxes on the rich. returning to capitol hill yesterday for the first time since the election, ryan pointed the republicans keeping control of the house as a sign that the country isn't sold on the democrats' agenda. take a listen to this. >> whether the people intended or not, we've got divided government. >> you don't think there's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. and unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we're going to have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means, i think, that both parties have to talk to each other. >> but could you see yourself supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> so you won't support a plan? >> i don't want to get into negotiating with the media, but i do not support rais
mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organized to take opportunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivation behind it and there is none. and as soon as the intelligence became clearer and as a mem
much and where? >> well i think this is a tremendous opportunity for barack obama to lead. he chose not to do that at the start of his administration in 08. instead of focusing on the economy went right after obamacare. he is basketball player. i think he could pull the ultimate head fake and actually not raise rates on small businesses. the markets would soar. he would get a lot of goodwill. he gets the budget in place and doesn't touch tax rates on small businesses, i think his approval ratings and market goes through the roof. rick: i had thought maybe we would hear from pete where the republicans would be willing to compromise instead of where he thinks the president would be willing to come promize. but, sometime mon, that said, 47% of the american people voted for mitt romney and the points that he was making during the campaign. don't those folks have any kind of say in this? >> sure absolutely. i think, the country wants, i think as the president said, that he got a mandate for action and i think it is now going to come down to his leadership along with the house and senate
obama laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown. he told his gathered his administration will be village le vigilant in making sure veterans get the health care they need. >>> members of congress are expressing concerns that matters of national security may have been compromised. they question the length of the fbi probe into the general's personal affairs and why they weren't informed. that investigation began with a complaint that petraeus' mistress was sending harassing e-mails to another woman close to the general. >>> two newly reported deaths in new york have raised the death toll from sandy to 113. full-blown protests have erupted on long island with hundreds of angry residents picketing the utility provider. congressman peter king, who represents part of long island, was on cnn's "state of the union." >> life the long island public authority have failed miserably, they are not doing the job and not communicating with people. i am hoping we can set up -- we are two weeks in the storm and still over 100,000 people without power and with no real estimate as to when they're going to
administration, no, sir knot a lot of trust in the obama team of him, fear that he could run for president, not a great relationship between him and the president, seem to have been repaired, had to be part of the backdrop here, a certain lack of trust. >> well, general petraeus spent much of the last decade abroad, he hasser is thfd country very well. did the honorable thing. we have this tendency in washington to want to tear people down when they have made a mistake, when they have fallen -- a legitimate american hero, he has got great contributions to make in the future. he will clearly have to navigate this very difficult personal issue but he has served this country well and this country is more secure today because of general david petraeus and this country owes him a debt of gratitude for that. >> no question about that doris, as i have said this weekend, not exactly a topic that brings husbands and wives closer together. your thoughts about this in terms of what should happen? >> i don't know. i think in general, i wish we could go back to the time when the private lives of our pu
